US NEws best pediatric hospitals

When devices and products intended for adult bodies are retrofitted for pediatric use, that does nothing but elevate risks and cause discomfort. Here at Action Products headquarters, we were thrilled to learn that, for the second year in a row, our specifically right-sized pediatric products are being used in 100% of the children’s hospitals named in the US News 2018-2019 Honor Roll.

Honorees this year include:

  1. Boston Children’s Hospital (top spot 5th year in a row)
  2. Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (advanced one spot since last year)
  3. Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
  4. Texas Children’s Hospital
  5. Children’s National Medical Center advanced 4 spots since last year)
  6. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
  7. Nationwide Children’s Hospital (advanced one slot since last year)
  8. Johns Hopkins Children Center
  9. Children’s Hospital Colorado (was not on list last year)
  10. Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

The annual U.S. News ranking of Best Children’s Hospitals is now in its twelfth year. The top 50 medical centers are ranked in ten specialties, including pediatric cardiology & heart surgery, pediatric cancer, and pediatric orthopedics.

Whether and how high a hospital was ranked depended on how well it performed in several broad aspects:

  • maximizing survival
  • minimizing infection rates
  • coordination of care
  • best practices and protocols

Some particularly popular Action pediatric and neonatal products used in these Top Ten hospital OR settings include:

  • donut head pads
  • horseshoe head pads
  • mini universal spot protectors
  • chest rolls (in no fewer than 8 different sizes!)

It’s unique satisfying to all of us at Action Products, given our commitment to patient safety and comfort as the evidence-based driver of our product design, to know that our company is a supplier for those Top Ten hospital’s smallest patients!
